Asuras Wrath demo angrily explodes onto XBLA and PSN today

Capcom is probably the busiest publisher of the start of the year. While most companies focused their releases at the end of the year, Capcom has two Resident Evils and Street Fighter X Tekken planned for the next dozen or so months. And then there’s the cinematic violence of Asura’s Wrath, which is coming to 360 and PS3 next month. Wondering just what this new franchise has to offer? Fortunately for you the demo just went live on Live and PSN.

The demo uses chunks of Episode 5 and 11 from the campaign, and if you couldn’t tell from the above trailer, that involves fighting on the moon and punching a guy that’s bigger than the Earth. We’d seen insanity like that in earlier previews (opens in new tab) and now you can give it a try. The title, developed by CyberConnect 2, comes to US stores February 21 and the UK Feb 24.
